At Herndon Smile Design, we make preventive care a priority. One of the preventive treatments we offer is a fluoride treatment. Dr. Amirreza Rafaat can help your child to keep their smile through the use of fluoride.
Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and many foods. It also is a common ingredient in most toothpastes and mouthwashes. Although you may receive a fair amount of fluoride in your day-to-day life, our dentist may recommend that you have a professional fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth and prevent the development of cavities.
One of the benefits of fluoride is that it remineralizes tooth enamel. Many of the foods and beverages we consume each day demineralize our tooth enamel, so fluoride can help to strengthen teeth. For children, this is especially important, as it can make sure that the growing teeth are strong and healthy as they develop.
We offer fluoride treatments in Herndon, Virginia, at our state-of-the-art dental office. If you choose to get a fluoride treatment, our dentist and team can give you the treatment during a regularly scheduled dental appointment. Dental office fluoride is available in the form of gels, varnishes and foams.
